Hilary Burns creates highly functional, robust basketry with ornamental flair. Based on a traditional Celtic basket design, the Kisheen Basket is no exception. Hilary was enamoured with the story behind its form, which is said to have originated centuries ago when Irish labourers’ wives carried hot lunches to their husbands in the fields. The tapered opening of this basket is certainly ideal for keeping food safe and compact on a cross-country journey, although contemporary use might include displaying it as a unique, stand-alone decorative piece. Each basket is exceptionally made, involving a slow and labour-intensive process.
